"Sank you Mummy!" with her drink in her hand.
"Thats all right dear" I say.
"No, say - My pleasure!" she replies.

"I've got an idea!" she says quite brightly to me, as we are driving off to do some grocery shopping.
"What?" I inquire.
"Don't say what!" she says.
"Sorry, I mean what's your idea?" .
"Don't say what!" she says again
"Okay tell me about your idea?"
There is silence....I think the idea has been forgotten.


Ever the diplomat

Recently turned 3 and a sophisticated miss, and very much adored by all and sundry. She is also very friendly, when I picked her up from day care on Friday, I was told she charmed another Mummy, by putting her arms around her and made comments about her lovely earrings and makeup - Gabriella loves all the trappings of femaledom.

When I ask her "How much do you love me" she usually replies "Like Daddy" - Daddy gets the reverse reply when asking the same question. I wonder where she learned diplomacy?

I was looking for my gingerbread recipe so start the Christmas baking and read some old posts - I wish I could start writing again I just miss that process, but two years down the track life is so much busier than it used to be its quite sad really, last night I was in bed by 8.30pm.

Work has calmed down finally and I no longer wake up before the day starts properly and dread what result I could possibly be asked to produce this week, I was very much dreading work for the first time in ages.

Though not an excuse for my intermittent posting I worked out the Blogger beta move is working against me when I have gone to post a picture to this blog or my cooking blog it takes ages to load so I lose patience and give up.
